The Hack Chair II is a continuation of Gareths conceptually rigorous research into digital crafting techniques. The result of a fluid interchange of digital tools and hand craftsmanship. A robotic 6 axis CNC arm, an extension of the craftsman’s hand and tactile knowledge, is programmed to hack into a block of Oak. A craftsman hand carving, navigating the glitches, fractures, and rings of time stored within, rendering a distorted Georgian archetype redefined in a digital world. An artefact that could never have existed until the moment it was hacked.
